for john boehner, i think boehner was exactly right, his instincts were let's get a big deal, the problem is he couldn't sell it to his caucus dominated by tea party who consider themselves patriots, but this -- >> six months ago you heard bill talking about it with stuart varney, said we shouldn't be raising taxes in a down economy. andrea. >> he's absolutely right. these crazy tea partiers that bob loves to blast every chance he gets have the same position that president obama essentially had in 2006 when he said we shouldn't vote to raise the debt ceiling and if we did it would be irresponsible so the president, big political issues on the line but i agree with bob in one respect, john boehner has real trouble within his conference. there are members of the gop caucus that have come out and said we're not voting for any kind of deal as long as it includes raising the debt ceiling so boehner does have to work with democrats. big challenges on both sides. heather: democrats bob certainly have a problem, a lot of them are saying no cuts to social security, no cuts to medicare, no cuts to

. bill: he says you can take care of the debt ceiling one vote. but that leaves a big problem and that's the debt. >> it's the debt itself. i couldn't agree more. the crisis comes, bill, not if we don't pass the debt ceiling, but if we do pass a debt ceiling it send a signal to the financial markets around the world that the united states is not capable of dealing with this enormous debt. that's the crisis. if we don't get a credible plan that brings the deficit spending down over the next two years and the president has been holding out on that. bill: do you think the markets will be spooked by that? >> you are exactly right. even as moody's and s & p said they will downgrade the debt. you would expect for the interest rate on those bonds to go up but the last couple weeks they have gone down. we cast a carte blanche $2.5 trillion increase in the debt i believe that could cause a financial panic. bill: that forces the markets to quiver. >> this is the ultimate point of leverage. that's why there has been a stalemate. republicans said if we cave on this we'll never get serious about sp

market is doing. yesterday it took a big hit closing down almost 200 points. it was the 4th straight day of losses. let's bring in stuart varney to help us understand this. will the market go down again, stu? >> in general terms nobody will be prepared to forecast where the stock market will go. it's like october of 2008 when there was a decision in the house, do we bail out wall street or don't we. there was a profound reaction on wall street when that vote came in. in general terms, here is what you can say. if we get a deal -- if a deal looks likely by this weekend, the stock market will probably go up. quite sharply. if we do not get a deal at all, nothing is on the table by that next week's deadline you can expect the stock market to go down quite sharply. those are generalized expectations for stocks, but i think they are realistic. here is the news of the day. as of this morning, a letter went out from the chief executives of all the big wall street firms. that letter went out to every member of congress. everybody on capitol hill. it was a plea. get a deal done. do not default. s
